Gotham and Teen Wolf’s Crystal Reed has joined the cast of DC Universe’s Swamp Thing series. Reed will be playing the role of Abby Arcane.
Smart and caring, CDC Doctor Abby Arcane’s (Reed) strong sense of empathy puts her at the center of a horrific life-threatening epidemic in her hometown, where she faces emotional demons from her past… while a chance meeting with scientist Alec Holland takes her into a world of horror and the supernatural, and of the elemental creature known as Swamp Thing.
Reed most recently played Sofia Falcone in a season-long series regular role on the fourth season of Fox’s Gotham, also produced by WBTV, and starred in French director Pascal Laugier’s film Incident in a Ghost Land. Before that, she co-starred on MTV’s Teen Wolf.
Written by Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman, Swamp Thing follows Abby Arcane (Reed) as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.
The series is set to premiere on the DC Universe streaming service in 2019.
